Steven Gould, SFWA President, Unable to Produce Double-secret “SFWA Confidentiality Rules”

In 2013 SFWA Elections, 2013 SFWA Presidential Election, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association, SFWA, SFWA 2013 Elections, Steve Gould, Steven Gould, The Write Agenda, Theodore Beale, Vox Day, Whatever, Writers on July 8, 2013 at 9:27 pm

“Steven Gould, the President, were able to provide me with any evidence for the existence of the double-secret “SFWA Confidentiality Rules” to which they had both appealed.”

Theodore Beale

See “Response: part I” on Beale’s Blog site. 4% of the SFW membership is behind this effort; a very easily identified group to expose.

Yet, recent tweets by SFWA President, Steven Gould, appear to mock exactly what he trying to enforce:

Like this “retweet” (Hmm . . . humor in censorship?)

gould_7

Or this stunning reflection on “elected” officials . . .  how’s that for calling the kettle black?

gould_8

Remember, it was SFWA President, Steven Gould and How He Treated a SFWA Member Before He Was in Office that is significant here. This Twitter post just speaks for itself. Do you think that SFWA President, Steven Gould had an “agenda” against author and SFWA Presidential candidate Theodore Beale before he took office? He posted this on Twitter 17 days before his term as SFWA President began. Sound like a Scalzi clone? Predisposed? Run members of of SFWA . . .quit now! Gould took office on July 1, 2013.

Victoria Strauss Taking a (Brief) Temporary Hiatus to Complete her Next Major Literary Flop

“Nobody who’s never sold jack is going to be put under a deadline for anything.”

Anonymous

Have you heard? Literary midget, Victoria Stauss, has a “book deadline” and has gone into a self-imposed exile.  Yes, it’s true! Strauss is in a mad rush to put the finishing touches on the sequel to her 2012 release Passion Blue. Passion Blue is currently ranked at 1,191,540 on Amazon; not exactly a best seller. The sequel is titled Colorsong.

Sequel . . . to what? Victoria Stauss, in her “career” as an author, has neither produced any book to validate herself, nor is there any evidence to take her seriously as an “author.” For example see the current rankings of Struass’ books below:

The Arm of the Stone (Paperback) Sales Rank: 3,385,246

The Awakened City (Hardcover) Sales Rank: 2,243,402

The Burning Land (Mass Market Paperback) Sales Rank: 2,045,976

The Garden of the Stone (Paperback) Sales Rank: 3,448,801

Passion Blue (Hardcover) Sales Rank: 1,191,540

Again, sequel . . . to what? What exactly is it that drives people like Victoria Strauss to produce literary failure after literary failure? Colorsong . . . it’s an interesting title for an author that has only used shades of gray on her watchdog canvas and leaving truthfulness always in question. Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware do like to sing a lot. However, the “color” of their song never reaches into anything near to black & white.

“Nobody who’s never sold jack is going to be put under a deadline for anything.”

How ironic that she never told Robin Wayne Bailey to shut the fuck up?

We recently posted an update on the literary midget, Victoria Strauss, and her historical book sales. See Victoria Strauss . . . Book Sales Records Updated. Strauss has indicated that during the Summer of 2014 she will be releasing a sequel to her latest literary flop (Passion Blue), titled Colorsong. Huh? A sequel to a book that is currently ranked 1,092,615 on Amazon? Yet, ROTFL, it received a Kirkus Star? That’s a book that  is selling approximately 3 copies every 500 days. What spawned this literary talent and why hasn’t the New York Times stopped to recognize it? Victoria? Why bother. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate things . . .  spend some time at the Gay Head Lighthouse on Martha’s Vineyard . . . grow your hair out and donate it to Locks of Love or something. Authorship just isn’t working for you sweetie!

Time to wake up people and begin to recognize the fraud that is being perpetrated against you . . . all in hope of promoting Victoria Strauss, Writer Beware and Ann “A.C.” Crispin.

Seems like the Screenplay by Roy C. Booth and Rachael Saltzman still isn’t going anywhere. No contact with Facebook users since January 2013. In addition, there has been numerous (failed) attempts to fund this project. We’re still amazed that James Macdonald, Victoria Strauss & Ann “A.C.” Crispin have not stepped up to fund this project. Since they’ve promoted it heavily, is it just the fact that their book royalties are so low that they cannot afford it? No Blockbusters here.

The authors of the chapters of this book include:

NOTE: Follow the Money . . . 

The book and the story behind it were optioned for a film in February 2011 by producing team Roy C. Booth and Rachael Saltzman, who were also slated to co-write and co-direct the film. The options money has gone to the SFWA Emergency Medical Fund. Production was tentatively scheduled to begin August 2011, but on 16 May 2011 the crowd funding campaign ended without reaching its goal.

Do you really choose to get your “publishing” information from an “author” that has not proven her validity in the publishing market? Strauss may be a “hero” within the Kool-Aid drinking . . . Flying monkey community. However, in terms of mass market appeal . . . i.e., the actual  “reading” community . . .  the individuals that really “buy” books . . . not the sympathetic purchases from the Flying Monkeys . . . Strauss has been and continues to be a literary flop! Strauss has yet to show her royalty statements (like Jim Hines has) and validate her status as an author that should be taken seriously.

*Note that the scam hunting is selective . . . they (Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware and the SFWA do not report the publishing scams that were perpetrated by their own attorney.
